Partnership Community Health Workers

Community Development currently has 2 Partnership Community Workers – Vivienne & Chrissie who work  in the South areas of Christchurch

The primary purpose is to develop and enhance pathways to and from Pegasus General Practices and other health related agencies.

Partnership Community Workers  (PCW) liaise with general practice teams and their local communities to link people into assistance that may be available.

PCWs focus on the health and well-being of low income, Maori, Pacific Island, Refugee and Migrant people who are currently enrolled with a Pegasus PHO Practice/those seeking enrolment with a Pegasus PHO Practice and those who are not enrolled.

The PCW Service is not a crisis or emergency service.

The PCW’s role  is short term, task centered and can:

  • assist people to gain access to health care and social services
  • support people to attend appointments
  • support people to identify and address needs that are impacting on their health
  • connect people with community support services
  • provide  information and resources about supports available in the community
